Yeah, good point about financial and physical burden of carrying the child and giving birth to it. I don't agree with this, but I'm guessing that people on the opposing side would say that it's only nine-months and especially with the type of government sponsored health-care for everyone that we're moving toward in the US, it's not unreasonable to ask someone who chose to have sex and expose themselves to the risk of conceiving to carry that child to full-term unless there are extreme medical complications.
Exactly. That's why I was musing that in order for people to absolve themselves of the obligation to care for their kids, they would have to claim that the conception was accidental before birth...that seems to give both men and women the same time-frame to make that decision. At the same time, as a society, we should also obligate both men and women to be equally emotionally, physically
, and financially responsible for their kids too. In my opinion, that's only fair, as well.
